Recipe by Natalie
"Different take on a mashed sweet potato recipe. Kid and husband approved! You can use a prepared pesto spread instead of making one from scratch with the basil, almond, lemon juice, and olive oil. Also, convert this to a 'paleo' recipe by cutting the milk and butter. Pick out the round, plump sweet potatoes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
chicken broth, or as needed to cover
uncured bacon, diced
fresh basil leaves
olive oil, or more to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
These were delicious, but a little salty because of the broth and bacon. Because backing off the bacon would be sacrilege, I used water with half a bouillon cube the next time. Still delicious but not as salty.
This was delicious. I used pre-made pesto since fresh basil is $$ right now. I used turkey bacon. Will definitely make this again
